Rob Swire Says Loss Of Hearing Caused From Vaping

Earlier this morning, we had reported that Rob Swire of Knife Party had gone “completely deaf in the left ear.” After getting back from the doctor, it appears that his lack of hearing isn't from the loud music after all.

After tweeting this out, many fans of Rob Swire and vape smokers themselves began to panic. Supposedly the chemical which may have caused all of this is propylene glycol “PG.” Propylene glycol is known to be used in many of the e-cig/vape juices sold today. When PG is applied to the ears, it is ototoxic (toxic to the cochlea/auditory nerve), but little is known what happens when inhaled due to e-cigs/vapes being so new to the market.

While it is not 100% sure that PG is the cause of Rob Swire's lack of hearing, Swire did mention to he'd be willing to fund the research.

The good News is that Swire did regain hearing!
